SHOPPING

TIANGGE AND FABRIC SHOPS

The Tiangge sa Taytay is one of the largest garments producer in the province of Rizal. It is located beside the Club Manila East. From the capitol of Antipolo, travel time is about an hour reaching the tiangge and fabric shops.

Planning to go there, visitors will see along the road a succession of different stores selling different kinds of fabric, clothes and curtains. Since Taytay is the “Garment Capital of the Philippines”, several shops in Tutuban Mall and Greenhills continue to purchase their products there because of the very affordable price, especially if you are going to buy in bulk, a large amount of discount is being offered. The Fabric Shops used to sell their products per kilo and not per yard, which is the difference with the shops in the other places. Customers can have 6 yards of fabrics per kilo and that is also the reason why they have low cost garments in good quality.

You will notice that with a small amount of money, buyers may take home a lot of clothes and fabric unlike buying in shopping centers.
